    Any light related things (stores, etc.) I should hit while out there, I guess San Jose and Oakland will be close.

    County Communication is down in San Jose, about an hour south of SF... Unfortunately, they have closed their show room... but you might be able to order and pick up your www.countycomm.com directly...

    But you are going to find that we have around an 8.5% sales tax... Makes Internet browsing a bit more exciting for us Kalifornians...

    What exactly are you looking for?

    Lights of a camping/hiking/sporting nature can be found at a couple of regional chains like REI and at nationally known department stores.

    Paramilitary type lights can be found at various surplus and police uniform supply stores.

    Prices then to be high, right at the MSRP level though.

    And San Jose is somewhere between 45-60 miles from San Francisco or Oakland, depending upon where you are starting from and where you are headed.

    If you guys are going to be in the Bay area at the same time, maybe we can set up an evening Bay area CPF get together. At the very least, we should be able to set up a lunch get together.

    Scrappy, as soon as you know your dates, post them, and we'll see what we can arrange.

    Bright and Jim

    I am heading out tomorrow at 7 am from Newark NJ (May 2nd) and returning on May 11th - Should be interesting. You know those threads - you know your a flashaholic when - while preparing to leave you tweak the CPF options to help the site load faster on your IPAQ (limited posts per page, no avatars, no photos.....etc. etc. etc.).

    Be sure to post any flashaholically-pertainant info regarding the area, as I am moving out there at the end of the summer to start grad school.

    Actually, on second thought, don't- I don't want to know where I can go to spend all my money I should be saving for tuition and rent .

    Well, I don't leave until the 15th, so I guess we will just miss each other. Maybe next time.

    Kfog Kaboom concert is Saturday night. They have the biggest fireworks display of the year, so you should check that out. It is a free concert, and they don't check bags very well, so you can sneak in some drinks. Pier 30,32.
